Akatosh gets first dibs on the Dragonborn because being Dragonborn is essentially being a shard of Akatosh. He gave you the dovah sos, he takes it away.

No, but what came of months of deleting hundreds of posts was simply not acceptable - like it literally jaratees me off for the fact that the only thing this amounted to was to suffocate as little belief in the integrity of post:rep ratios as I had

That's a joke tho, pls no take sereyus

I know this video isn't terribly interesting if you don't know the cards involved (hell, they used a few that I had to look up myself) but this is pretty nutso. I always knew Dewloren and Grandsoil had some crazy potential... But damn.

Saints Row 2 is being given away on GOG.com! Grab it for the next 36 hours, you won't regret it*
*assuming the comments are right that it's more stable than the Steam version

Can you explain it to me because it looks interesting but I got no clue how to play Yu Gi'oh. I think maybe they had to get their entire deck in the graveyard to win but I'm not sure.

Anyone know of any good bisexual visual novels? Having a surprisingly hard time finding any. Preferably in English.

I wonder if in TES, it's possible to quantify the "size" of a soul

Like, Akatosh isn't some super special god soul, he just happens to be the "biggest" piece

If that's the case, then if DB eats enough soul bits then he might be the one absorbing Akatosh and not the other way around

But if it is a size issue, then Akatosh is likely too big to be rivaled by all the dragon souls put together, though.

Bi VNs seem to be a pretty rare market (though, admittedly, I usually go for the more eroge side of the market so I don't know about more romance-based VNs) I'd wager because people think that people are either only wanting straight or only wanting gay. Most of the stuff I've seen caters hard to one kind of thing and sticks to it, jack of all trades stuff seems much more rare for various reasons.

Then again the only non-pure-smut VN I've read was Katawa Shoujo which had the absolute best man on man ending in a predominantly straight VN.

The background for this video is as such:
"Choose any format, TCG or OCG.
Your decklist must be legal during that format.
Your hand can start with any 5 cards of your choosing.
You must run 60 cards.
Your opponent’s opening hand is 5 blank cards.
You must have 0 cards in your Main Deck when you win the Duel.
You must have 0 cards in your Extra Deck when you win the Duel.
Your opponent must have 0 cards on their field, or in their hand/graveyard when you win the Duel.
You must win on your first turn.
You cannot win by deckout.
Your opponents life points must be 8000 when you win.
You must go first."

The cards used and their interactions are fairly myriad, but the main idea was to see if it was possible using a specific format of YGO to do a First Turn Kill with no cards in hand, deck, or Extra Deck with the maximum deck size. So while not a viable deck by any means, it DOES show that this specific set of challenges are doable within the constraints of the game.

Isn't that the whole deal with the differently sized soul gems?

I suppose a better, if more innuendo-laden way for me to ask my question is, "does size matter the most when determining what makes a TES soul special?"

There's funky stuff like Vivec fitting in Azura's star; lore-wise is it only because Azura's star is bigger, or is there some qualitative difference between Vivec's soul and those of other mortals?

Then there's also the distinction between black and white souls, and with Dragons it just gets more confusing, particularly since Azura's star can't trap them in Skyrim, which could just be gameplay/story segregation, or else it actually has lore significance.

Well, that is... insane.

Actually, there is a Walking Way (a way of becoming a god) called soul stacking, that basically suggests that if you eat enough powerful souls, you could become a god. But really, to get on the level of Akatosh, the Last Dragonborn would need to consume literally every soul, and THEN he'd also need to work on Alduin and Auriel, because they're all fragments of the same time god, Aka.

Anyway, an article with content.

Good way to start a flame war #32142: Ask "is the correct version 'mirror mirror on the wall' or 'magic mirror on the wall'?"
